Won’t say what organization they’re with, don’t know what their signs mean, won’t say if they’re getting paid. Hmmm…
Outside of Meng Wanzhou’s extradition hearing, there was a small gaggle of pro-Meng ‘activists.’
The ‘activists’ attempted to portray their presence as a ‘spontaneous’ expression of support for Meng.
Yet, it REALLY seems like they were paid protesters.
Journalist Bob Mackin asked the assembled group a few easy questions like, “what organization are you with,” “why are you here,” and “are you being paid to be here?”
Their answers were hilariously bad, or even non-existent.
You can watch the video below:
“Outstanding work by @bobmackin. Just basic journalism really — asking simple questions out of curiosity — but it’s practiced by so few people these days. My own guess: @Huawei_Canada hired them from a temp agency. They literally don’t even know what their signs mean.”
“Happening now: students parroting the message of ex-Chrétien chief of staff Eddie Goldenberg await Meng Wanzhou’s arrival at the Law Courts. Are they paid to be here?”

The most likely explanation here is exactly what Levant said: Huawei Canada paid those people to be there. Considering that Huawei Canada is simply a tool of the Chinese Communist Party, it would be easy enough for them – or an organization connected to them – to pay some chumps to hold up their signs.
